, the read in different reports that countries in europe, like spain, and france, have offered great sums of money to get their hostages tajes released, so is that something you wish the u.s. would do as well? and maybe jim would be here? >> i think in light of jim's horrific killing and in light of the fact that the islamic state has risen to a new level of power, and menace, in the world, that it may well be appropriate for the united states government to consider some change in their policy. you said you watched that video, and it was very difficult to watch, obviously. what do you feel towards the people that killed him. >> i -- i don't feel hatred. i imagine that john and dianne foley feel the same way. i pray for them. as i pray for jim. >> he said he could understand why foley went to report many syria, he wanted to tell the story of the syrian people, david, he told me foley died going what he loved to to. coming up, our conversation with the long time friend, about his courage, and how he made a difference as a journalists. con gregal when it released five taliban leaders earlier
are not good listeners. >> governor erlich, the social democracy of europe by many metrics are providing a better quality of life for people than the united states. >> not the freedom metric. >> not the freedom dimension? that might be a relative thing. we have tried a market-based approach to providing a better life to the american people and that seemed to have succeeded in providing a better life to the american people on top of the pyramid. what is freedom worth against quality of life? is freedom the measure of quality of life? is it the perception of the people of the european democracies that they don't have freedom? >> it is fascinating to see this viewpoint as income in equality becomes a mantra because you go do class warfare every time when you are in trouble. what is fascinating is despite the tax increases and the progressives and 20 new taxes in obamacare and stimulus. income inequality increased during the obama era. higher taxes and you didn't build that and degrading the sense of entrepreneurs and freedom which is what we have always been about. and my body had a comment
of the world will join together to save the people of europe. we named our ship the rainbow warrior and i spent the next 15 years on the front lines of the movement around the world. next, we took on french nuclear testing in the south pacific. detonatingstill hydrogen atomic bombs in the air in the 1970's, sending radiation around the world. it took some years to drive these nuclear tests underground. french as 1985, commandos bombed and sank to the rainbow warrior killing our photographer. 1970's,ck again to the here i am driving a small rubber boat into the first encounter with these soviet factory whaling fleet in the north pacific in 1975. we confronted the whalers, putting ourselves in front of their happens -- their harpoons to protect the fleeing whales. that got us on television, bringing save the whales to everyone's living room for the first time. just four years later, whaling was banned in the north pacific. here i am sitting on a baby seal off the coast of newfoundland to protect it from the hunters' clubs. i was arrested and hauled off to jail. the seal was clogged and skinned. b
. there is no evidence whatsoever. it's not only our middle eastern allies, but it's also all of europe and there are plenty of people here are threatened by isis and plenty of people that are carrying passports from these various countries that are threatened and yet the president is on the golf course. he hasn't done one thing to try to start building a coalition of countries. >> some. david: sometimes they have various fraternities that go beyond this. the intel agencies working together against them. >> very loosely right now because they have not been in power by their leadership to do it and so the al qaeda threat, and no other purpose is isys, the size besides the growth and the composition and its objection and who its members are and things like that. and we don't see by any means and we don't see any of the overall 100% dedicated effort against this thing that threatens us all. >> everyone has heard about the potential of taking over the oil fields, but they are getting funding. marc ginsberg was talking about them and other people have been talking about how they in particula
in decline. its population is falling. europe is in decline. the chinese, people say the chinese are going to take over the world. when i was growing up japan was going to take over the world. there's always somebody else going to take over the world. the capacity for self-renewal is in this country. the problem is not having an administration that is taking advantage of it. >> right. so basically america succeeds despite the leader's failure. that we're going to still pull it through, it's just going to be a little harder. >> one of the things that always amazes me you say a president of a country like colombia and say, this country's life or death succeeds whether it's a good president or not. in a way the miracle of america is we can have terrible presidents and yet here we are. >> yeah. >> basically a powerful, prosperous and confident country that can do things if only we have good leader. >> it's a testament to our system that we can withstand these things, these internal problems. i always feel like what's happening is punishment for our past transgressions. you know what i mean? it
or response from the u.s. and europe about how to deal with it. >> yet, that "times" article was eye opening in terms of how widespread and prevalent the issue is, how it's all sort of happening through back channels and not necessarily being reported. and also about the fact that essentially a kind of horrible black market has opened up between different militant groups who are taking hostages. that people are kidnapped by one group and possibly traded or sold to others because there's this value, this market value, for westerners that they're snatching. >> yes. and as the europeans pay, they set a market price for american citizens for jim foley that there is no way jim foley or "global post," the organization he worked for can pay the amount of money the french government and spanish government paid, and it's a business. there's a protocol. there's close coordination where different militant groups from knot after r north africa, yemen, afghanistan, follow a similar clear pattern. they abduct someone, no news for months then they send a video or message and they wait. it's a very clear pa
. then i think that both regional countries, and affected countris in europe have to make their contribution, i was encourageed to hear that british political figures talking about possibly involving themselves in training some of the iraqi forces, i think that would be a good thi thing. lou: u.s. training has not been helpful to them. >> it was -- but now you have to recon staout some of these forces, one idea that i think not far fetched ted to take some units, the more elite ones special ops and bring them to a neighbors country like jordan and have special forces and other trainers from u.s., and u.k., and elsewhere, help you know, update their skills, and give them refresher training that is business useful. lou: it seem like only thing that is working right now is killing them, and it is interesting that has been a reserve strategy on the part of the administration. president talks about containing them. others are talking about irk rat kateing them -- eradicateing them they represent such a threat. on which side do you come down. >> you have to take this step by st
are americans. these are people who could come back to europe, come back into this country with a valid passport they already have. that is a real threat for the united states. >> what is president obama's strategy on isis? >> i don't think he has a strategy. i think that's the problem. he's driven from one tactical response to another. so you're worried about 30,000 or 40,000 iia yeedys being massacred, you're worried about personnel in erbil, the mosul dam being opened and flooded the valleys down toward baghdad, so there are pinprick responses, but none of this constitutes a strategy. he hasn't defined our objectives. he hasn't tried to define how he wants to go about that. there is no evidence he's building an international coalition. i still don't think he understands the internal political situation in iraq or iran's influence there. it's just completely disconnected from the reality that is evolving minute by minute on the ground. >> ambassador, thank you, sir. >> thank you. >> tonight, we have new information about the failed mission to rescue american hostages held in syria. jennifer gr
compare with any of its weather counter parts in europe. there were no sculptors of american. when he found two worthy tus cans, he hired them. he exasperated him. he called him an artist of first-rate excellence. and the other sculptor was linsone yurks. he feared it didn't resemble the bird of prey. and latrobe didn't want any criticism, least of all, from a congressman from the western states. so he wrote a letter asking for the drawing of a head and yosz of a bald eagle. he opens his package to find the perfect head and neck of a bald eagle. shoot the bird of prey to look at the arrangement of its feathers. working in meticulous detail, he wouldn't leave a year beyond the departure of the british. he put all of his creative energy in this. when he had finished, latrobe marvelled. he called it the finest eagle. it had a wingspan of 12 feet and was hoisted high above the speaker's chair in the awesome hall of the house of representatives. now, sadly, it would be destroyed. along with all the other works of art over the objections of junior officers and british army who said we don't
are leaving europe and going into syria along with a growing number of americans. well, roxanne that has more on that. >> david, the u.s. thinks that at least seven ^+thou foreign fighters have gone to syria. >> they say many of those people are are americans. they are getting more and more worried and also concerns about what might happen if and when they come home. the voice james foley heard was his killer's, he said it probably belonged to a man that was british. >>s far too many british citizens. the u.s. says dozens of americans have stream stood syria to. >> from america. and 22 years old. >> he was one of them, he left behind his chilling message, before he carried out a suicide mission in syria, earlier this year. >> many muslims. >> their motivation vary. >> one of the reason ares that it and be attracted to +t islamic state, is because they don't have any local ties so that they can commit acts of violence against people in ^t region, without any headation, if you like, or any concern that might p a friend of their cause can sin. >> some seeking an identity and purpose, and they fi
more than a month of the quarter living in europe and just had a great time over there. really working hard on our france business, our german business. our u.k. business, all which you can see the european numbers are just, you know, beyond expectation, jim. and then, yes, we had incredible announcement with phillips where we're becoming their standard health platform. they're becoming a software company and building applications using salesforce as the platform to do that. and we also saw incredible announcements in the quarter while i was in europe with other great organizations like roche who showed how the next generation hardware and clinical equipment is being built on top of the salesforce platform as well as louis vuitton. you will see more than 10,000 louis vuitton sales rep with the new client telling app. we talked about home depot using that. you have seen that at community home and in the stores and with their employees and now louis vuitton which is the other side of the spectrum in retail, you know, is implementing the same technology. we couldn't be more exci
also know westerners from europe, even from the united states? >> well, this successful muslim movement challenging the west, in particular, challenging those who are perceived to want to kill muslims is a galvanizing thing, i think, for muslim young men in many places including europe. in iraq, in particular, though, i.s.i.s. is benefiting from the mismanagement of iraqi affairs by the iraqi government. the exclusion of sunnis from public goods, the disregard for sunni interests in the wake of the massive dislocation that followed the american invasion of iraq in 2003, there's a lot of unhappiness among the sunni majority population, especially those sunnis who are concentrated in the areas where i.s.i.s. has gotten a foothold, so i.s.i.s. has been able to join forces with the baathists, former saddam people and other disaffected individuals to gain a pretty serious grip. >> woodruff: what about in syria, shadi hamid? i mean, they were clearly able to swell their forces, draw more adherence in syria and, again, from the west, from europe, from the united states. what's the appeal? we s
bike is ruined, you're on the car, go home with that guy. >> more amazing video from eastern europe. this is from russia. busses are waiting, a bus stop, and watch what happens. >> this will not be as good. oh, that was good. >> where did that come from? >> from a raised roadway that left the garage. >> oh, wow. >> see it? lands between the two busses. the crane is trying to lift the bus out of there, it miss the most of the bus stop, just dented on the roof a little bit. here's another angle from up above. sadly, there was a bruised spine, and a 29 -year-old woman cleaning the streets suffered a brain injury, and another person was injured, but refused to be hospitalized. >> see the person crawling out the front of the bus. yo i don't know if that's the driver. >> everyone who got out of the cars to help are amazing. >> they believe it was faulty brakes. no fatalities in the incident. >>> planning on going outdoors, enjoying the water, water sports, you have to remember to be careful and be aware of your surroundings. this first video, as it picks up, you see rushing water. this is
and more recently the h1n1 flu virus. visitors from the u.s., south america, and europe are scrapping their plans en masse. say, but ificult to would say probably close to about 2000 passenger so far. tourists 10 million visited south africa in 2013. a further million traveled to kenya. in both countries, the industry accounts for more than 10% of their gdp. >> ireland's health service is carrying out tests on a suspected case of ebola when a deceased person that recently returned from africa. ae sample will be sent to laboratory for testing. ireland said the risk of transmission of the disease is extremely low. in the u.s., tensions seem to sourisimmered down in mis following a visit from u.s. attorney eric holder, who is promising a full investigation and into the unarmed black teenager michael brown by a white lease officer. the police have been criticized for their military style approach. one officer has been suspended indefinitely for pointing his military style assault rifle at demonstrators. >> an inflammatory threat from an officer deployed to keep the peace. policemen in fer
europe using western passports. bryan todd has been investigating that side of the story for us. this is down right scary. >> it is. tonight the threat information is chilling from u.s. intelligence officials. they are telling us they have indications isis has cells in europe that could attack u.s. interests. analysts say it's possible the group could develop cells inside the u.s. one says they already have. it's in line with the threat made by that one isis militant who killed james foley. >> moments before beheading james foley, his executioner, an isis terrorist warns of more attacks on americans. >> any attempt by you, obama, to deny the muslims their rights of living in safety under the islamic caliphate result in the blood shed of your people. >> tonight, new indications that isis cos harm more americans and others in the west. a u.s. intelligence official tells cnn they have indications of isis cells in europe which could attack u.s. embassies and other american interests. the official says it's not clear if those terrorists were ordered by isis or if they went on their o
20th century history. would we have been able to go over to europe in 1917 and 18? don't know? might not have worked out too well for the u.s. same thing for world war ii. could we have defeated the germans and japanese? i really think that things were much better for everyone because we were the united states instead of being two separate countries. thank you all for being here. thank you all very much. [ applause ] >> ten minutes was -- it was agonizing. but in fairness to jimmy's remarks, he has given us a lot to think about this morning. one of the things i would charge you with as visitors to the park today, and this is 150 years to the day of this battle. what those men talked about in your quotes read by jimmy is take some time to walk these fields by yourself. don't take it to work. just give yourself a few moments to contemplate the words spoken by those men years ago. we will not be able to conceptualize the horror and sacrifice that someone must feel on july 30, 1864. our keynote remarks this morning are coming from colonel paul brooks. he assumed command of fort lee in au
with europe and other nations in the world because if one country or two countries pay ransoms and others don't and we put americans and others in danger of being abducted and also the ransom policy, i believe, the no-ransom policy began under the bush administration and part of this was to prevent terrorists from becoming wealthy and breaking up many of their financial networks. this is a very complicated issue and it certainly has to be dealt with and addressed and the issue of ransom, i believe, will only work paying or not paying ransom if, in fact, america and our european allies are in sync and in coordination with one policy. >> congresswoman, does it trouble you the stories coming out about how well funded and how well organized and how strong isis is? it's a threat unlike we have seen in the past and stronger thannal cade and more driven ideologically. does that trouble you and does that change the dynamic and how you view any of this? >> you just want to go to congress, it sounds like. >> i view isis as very, very dangerous. i think the attorney general, the president, everyone unde
and at general it required a visit from their senior officers flying in from back east and europe to appear before the committee to answer questions that were generated because this was a significant amount of investment and we wanted to clarify and make sure that we all understood what in fact the parameters were and the projected outcomes and that and i am glad to see we're still carrying that out. >> director. >> if i may commissioners our information technology director mr. kim acknowledged exactly what you're saying commissioner and had called senior leadership of siemens into the room to have that discussion and is completely confident that a candid discussion will yield better results this time. thank you. >> thank you. >> and i would say while the numbers are fairly large in the contracts which we're recommending they are nothing compared to what we have to approve in the near future. >> and i think commissioner sanchez i could echo what commissioner singer was saying because we've all participated -- you and i in these same discussions and in this case our director has indica
most of europe's airspace. this cost airlines well over a billion euros. the eyes cap released three cubic meters of ice water. for now, the glacier is deceptively calm, but the beauty of this landscape bolide the pilot forces of nature beneath the surface. >> that was pretty amazing but still to come, this spectacular footage. >> what would george chances be of walking away without a single crash. >> turkey's ruling justice and development party has chosen a new prime minister. he is a longtime party official who served as the foreign minister for the past five years. reports say he was erdogan's top choice for the job. our correspondent is in istanbul. the party holds all the power in turkey. erdogan will be the president. is this the death of the secular is ttate?he death of the secular >> the government would dismiss cuts concern saying that they pose no threat to the secular state but critics of the government of which there are many are deeply concerned by this. they say this is increasing centralization of power, the removal of more checks to the government and i think they wi
to europe or the u.k., i think it ises con can seveble, that especially if britain and american play a role in defeating them, they willle co back to attack. >> already one western attack has been attributed to the islamic state group, a former fighter opened fightner a jewish museum in belgium. all of this has is a concern for the future, both their safety and humanity. this is a major worry. really has no connection to islam, nor humanity. the bigger worry is they may get killed there. >> authorities here at britt tape's intelligence service, say finding those citizens, returns from the fighting in syria and iraq, is now one of their main priorities. and with most european passport holders also having visa free access to the united states, for homeland finding those fighters is also said to be top of their list. said the pentagon violated the law, the nonpartisan governor said today the department of defense probing the law when it failed to give congress 30 days notice before the exchange in the month of may. the d.a.o. also says the transfer violated another olaw barring federal agent f
the globe. while that has led to europe becoming something of an inadvertent underwriter of al qaeda, these ransom payments have led to the release of journalists. 20 are believed to be in syria right now. many of them with isis. one of them is american journalist steven sotloff whose life is threatened by isis if the u.s. continues air strikes in iraq. the u.s. launched six air strikes against isis targets. joining me now is nbc news correspondent eamon mohyeldin. martin dempsey and defense secretary chuck hagel, there were u.s. operatives inside syria. how much of that is a surprise to those in the region? well, it's certainly a tremendous surprise. no doubt the u.s. has watched what has happened very closely in syria. they are very engaged in supporting the syrian opposition and syrian opposition factions and for the first time to have troops and boots on the ground inside syria publicly acknowledged by the united states is certainly a significant point because it shows that there say willingness on the obama administration's part to go and get involved in this conflict if it mean
. so far we simply haven't seen that done. >> i don't know. western europe? germany's not even doing well. i don't know how much longer -- >> if you look across the pond to europe, we fully expect them to go into a mild soft recession, couple of negative quarters. their growth rate is at 0%. stocks there are being sold off as if there are no earnings growth opportunities in all of the eurozone. that clearly is not the case. but this is a stock picker's market par excellence, one where you want a manager with a proven track record to be able to go in, turn over the stones, find the rubies in the rubble. they're there. you just have to lace up your boots and wade into what can be some pretty woolly places. >> both of you have identified some names that look interesting here. >> we like to buy things that haven't performed all that well as we think about new ideas. deere is now trading at a single digit multiple. 2.8% dividend yield is down on the year. a cyclical company we think is poised to do well in the long run. even as we head toward trough earnings in the next couple of years, t

attractive group for extremists from europe, in particular, to join and also from around the islamic world, especially from iraq. many iraqis have been going to join up with isis once that border melted away between iraq and syria. it is believed that there are 3 to 4,000 europeans, many from the uk, hundreds at least. and this group that was holding james foley was led, in particular, by the person on the video who is believed to be a uk national. some people called him one of three different british guards, nicknamed the beatles by the hostages themselves. they are considered a very brutal, very idealistic than al qaeda was. i was told that al qaeda is dedicated, it is devoted but sometimes in the off hours, al qaeda members would drink, smoke, do things that aren't necessarily consistent with al qaeda's propaganda. these groups are totally committed, totally believing that they are part of this caliphate, part of the islamic state and totally brutal. >> richard engel, please stay safe. >>> with us now, former counterterrorism and a former jihadi. thank you so much for being here. your s
it shut down much of europe's airspace for six days. >> all eyes are on the volcano that is hidden under ice in the vast glacier. there have been thousands of earthquakes in the region since saturday. almost 2,000 small earcs in the region in the past 48 hours alone. and combined with the evidence that magma is moving under the surface, less than 10 kilometers under the surface, the authorities are prepared for the possibility of an eruption. but iceland is known for its volcanoes and for its seismic activity. so therefore, tourists and locals are prepared. >> . >> we're afraid of the ash. it was bad for us in 2010, and we're all a little afraid. will it come to the south or go out to sea? >> we're a little worried. since we were coming on vacation, we didn't know if we should come, but they ended up closing roads and evacuating people, and it's supposed to be safe for us, because we're not in the zone. >> fears of the possible eruption are bringing back fears of when the volcano behind us erupted in 2010. it sent a huge ash cloud up and canceled flights, affecting travelers across europ
officers and we have them in 11 different countries, mostly at the gateway airports in europe and asia and south america. what they do is work at the airports and they don't have any authority. they are in an advisory role working with the airlines announced authorities. -- airlines and most authorities. we thinka case where because it is something in their backgrounds making them inadmissible to the united states because they are a visitor, we can make recommendations to the airlines that they not board the person, because if they do board them and fly them, chances are we are not going to find them admissible to the united states and they will have to fly them back. we refer them over to the u.s. embassy and review their visa and take extra time to look at who they are. the other way we do it is just from our national targeting center, we have direct contact with airlines and are able to call them the points of embarkation to talk to a person, make sure they are screened and asked her ways, or refer them again to the embassy. do isher thing we something called preclearance. we have o

soil. a u.s. intelligence official tells us they have indications of isis cells in europe which could attack u.s. embassies and other american interests. security and intelligence analysts say there is growing concern that isis could also develop sleeper cells inside the united states. now, intelligence officials here will not go as far as saying they are here in the united states now. but it is possible, and isis clearly, as you've seen in that video with james foley, has the motivation to attack american targets given the u.s. air strikes against them in iraq. and one analyst says the isis leader, al baghdadi, what this analyst calls a narcis icissist psychopath. that could be in their plans in the future. >> british prime minister david cameron confirmed that foley's executioner is british. are there americans among the ranks of isis, brian? >> we're being told, don, it's very likely there are americans within the ranks of isis. u.s. intelligence officials have told us more than 100 americans have gone to syria to fight with jihadist groups, and it's looking increasingly likely tha
